Cristian Lasagna-Reeves, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor at the Department of Anatomy, Cell Biology & Physiology and the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at Indiana University School of Medicine. He also holds an affiliate faculty position in the Indiana Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. The main focus of his lab is to comprehensively elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the transition that the microtubule-associated protein tau undergoes from its physiological function to aggregated toxic function in neurodegenerative tauopathies. To investigate the mechanisms of these diseases, he has used a broad range of strategies, such as in vitro aggregation assays, disease cellular models, mouse genetic interaction, behavioral studies, and human neuropathology.
